Hi all. I just picked up a 2007 E280CDI. Ideally I wanted the estate version but this saloon came up and the history was spot on! 1 previous owner and serviced every year by Mercedes and a very reputable specialist with all the invoices from over the years.

If anyone has an estate version W211 then please let me know.

Trying to post pictures….
 
Cheers paul. Really pleased with it. It’s like a brand new car. Build quality of these was excellent back in the day!

Mine doesn’t have the airbag suspension which is one less worry!
 
Yep nice mo mo's.
Worthwhile having the brake pipes checked. I pieced all 4 of ours recently. One went, in the couple of weeks it was on stilts another went.
 
Welcome from another long time S211 owner.

Saloons outsold estates 10 to one, but then estates get their own enthusiast base when they get older. So saloons are easier to find and cheaper. But you've got a good start there; provenance matters. Some regular maintenance and it'll be good for 300,000.

Really pleased with it. It’s been very well looked after and just under 100k miles. It has a stack of invoices totalling over £10k from the Merc specialist! With a 17 year old car it’s the provenance that is the most important to me so that’s why I went for it.

Would love to find a similar mint example in the sport estate version - growing family! If anyone hears of one please give me shout.
 
I will service it every year but was just interested to know Mercs stand on the intervals
 
The car will tell you anully.
But since Mrs Me isn't doing hi mileage I'll do ours every 10k(ish).
 
What’s the mileage service interval on these? It’s been serviced every year (5-7000 miles per year). Is it service every year or a set mileage?
The car will tell you. Broadly it's annual but pattern of use will amend "as necessary."

But owners "do their own thing."

My last S211 had been main dealer serviced and MoT'd during the fourth week of October for 15 years, despite averaging 6k a year
 
Every time I try upload a photo from my phone it says “oops file too large” 🤷‍♂️
I use my laptop so do not have that issue. Just how do people who only use a mobile post pics?

If you have an Android device, open the picture you want to post, click the 'edit' icon (the pencil at the bottom of the screen), click the '3 dots' of 'hamburger' top right of your screen. Click resize and it'll give you some resize options. Select one, click 'done' and 'save'.
